  • 49ers Consider Jerick McKinnon A Three-Down Back

    The San Francisco 49ers consider running back Jerick McKinnon a three-down back. "We think he's a great third-down back. We also think he's good on first and second down, too," head coach Kyle Shanahan said. San Fran signed McKinnon to be their main workhorse in 2018, although Matt Breida should spell him here and there. Still, with the possibility of playing all three downs often in an offense on the rise with a strong young quarterback in Jimmy Garoppolo, McKinnon has RB1 upside in all formats heading into 2018 drafts. You'll probably have to pay a pretty penny to secure him.

  • Jerick McKinnon To Have Large Role In Niners Offense

    The San Francisco 49ers placed a large priority on running back Jerick McKinnon in free agency, which is why they signed him to a four-year, $30 million deal ($11.7 million in guarantees). Head coach Kyle Shanahan sees McKinnon filling the Devonta Freeman role from his time in Atlanta. McKinnon averaged 4.0 yards per attempt on the ground in his four NFL seasons with the Vikings. With McKinnon being the clear starter, Matt Breida will fill the complementary role in the backfield. In an offense on the rise, McKinnon will be a popular fantasy target in 2018 and he has RB1 upside.

  • Kyle Shanahan Gushes Over Jerick McKinnon

    San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said he got "lost" watching running back Jerick McKinnon's game film before they signed him for four years and $30 million. "There's so many things I liked about him, just visualizing how I would use him and the stuff that we would do," Shanahan said Thursday. "Even though there wasn't a ton of it, you've still got to see him do some stuff that we do a lot. And whenever he did, he excelled a ton and looked very good at it." McKinnon's receiving skills will be especially useful in San Fran's outside zone-running system, where he'll be asked to operate in space. He had 142 catches in four seasons in Minnesota, and Shanahan said there will be times where the running back will be lined up as a wide receiver. McKinnon's arrow is pointing way up, especially in fantasy, although Matt Breida will likely mix in. Shanahan should get creative in getting the ball to McKinnon, and he certainly has RB1 upside in PPR leagues.
